(22/04/2017) Noida : Noida and Greater Noida Land allotments files are being reopened for investigation after Prime Minister Modi and Yogi Adityanath have shown special interest in the same. It is being said that Noida Land Scam can go up to the tunes of 2 Lakh crore, hence making it the biggest scam of the country so far.
Obviously this wouldn’t be an achievement that Noida can ever be proud of. Former UP CM and her brother has also come under scanner in this land allotment scam. The complaint in this same matter was raised 5 years back in 2011-12 by BJP MP Kirit Somaiya. However during that period both SP and Congress government choose to ignore it and CBI even gave clean chit to Former CM and her brother in this case.
Indeed the tables have turned now and it is now Yogi Adityanath and Prime Minister Narendra Modi who are at top positions at state and Union respectively. PM Modi has been very serious about fighting graft and some sources reveal that Yogi Adityanath has personally requested PM Modi to resume Noida Land Scam enquiry.
As per the IT sources, raid on OSD Yashpal Tyagi could just be the beginning of the chain of events that this enquiry is going to bring into action. Many other big fishes might soon face action and department is taking its time to have full-proof information’s before getting into some action.
It must be mentioned that during 2011-12 BJP MP Kirit Somaiya has also provided a list of 13 officers with his complaint. Political patronage would have save them then, but things don’t look exactly bright for corrupt officials now.
As the scam deals with land allotment deals, it might also un-cover illegal transactions of several big builders of the region as well.
